Lets Scrap Sketches - Dec. 1st Sketch

Well here we are in December, so hard to believe this year is almost over with!!

It has been busy at the Carson house too...  traveling for Turkey Day, Black Friday shopping and decorating the house and still working on the outside decor as well!!.

I did find a little time over the holidays last week to get this layout completed for reveal.  As usual we have another awesome sketch up at Let's Scrap Sketches this week!! 

So this was another year of firsts in our family - my twin nephews graduated from Kindergarten and my oldest nephew graduated high school so my SIL has the fabulous pictures taken to celebrate the occasion!

Sketches in Thyme #301

Wow - sketch #301 at Sketches in Thyme!! And I love it!!!  AFter a week of being under the weather it was nice to get a little scrappiness going and who doesn't love kitties??

We used to be overrun with kitties at our house and I tend to bring more home than I should at time ;)
Right now we are down to one, Blaze, and Wonki belongs to my dad, Blackie was just passing through!!

This is such a versatile sketch and I love it!!

November 15th - Let's Scrap Sketches

So I am a little late with this post, no thanks to a dose of the crud going around.  Hard to believe we are so close to the end of the year and Thanksgiving is this coming week - where does the time go??!!

This is a fabulous sketch to work with and who doesn't want to think of the beach this time of year, when we are finally getting some cooler weather.

And in a effort to start using my stash, I found this fabulous paper by Simple Stories from their Summer Fresh line a few years ago, and I thought it worked great with these pictures.

Let's Scrap Nov 1st Sketch

Happy November everyone!!!  Hard to believe we are down to our last 2 months of the year!!

So today at Let's Scrap we have throwback sketch, which I still love!!  Can't go wrong with the hexagon shape!!

My SIL's mom gave me some pictures from their beach trip this past summer and they just worked well with this sketch.  And they aren't ball pictures!!  LOL

I also loving using scraps, that way I feel like I am really getting my money's worth out of my paper, these were from a Close To My Heart pack I had left over and I think they worked perfectly together.

Sketches in Thyme reveal #297

At least I am not as late with this one as my last layout...  things have just been crazy in my life!!

This week over at Sketches in Thyme, we have a great single page sketch from Shawn Lahr!!  I just happened to have this great picture of some of best scrappy girlies that went right along with the paper that was just laying on my table waiting to be used.

As you can see, I am pretty loosely matching the sketch, and I am still not hapy with the one flower on the bottom, but I do love the bling accents and wish I would have printed my journaling instead of my messy handwriting - guess I see a redo coming up shortly ;)

Hop on over to Sketches in Thyme and check out the other inspiration and sketches, get yours uploaded and a chance for a awesome paper pack prize!!

Better late than never?? Let's Scrap - Oct. 15th reveal

I truly think I need to start carrying a planner... I can't seem to remember anything anymore!!

So I finally am sharing the Let's Scrap Sketches mid month sketch and layout (sorry Cathy) between work and family issues, the past few weeks have really thrown me for a loop.

Here is the fabulous sketch for the 15th - and yes... more of the twins, but hey, they are super cute subjects!!

Just a few snapshots of the boys summer activities...  wish I could go back to those carefree summer days when your only worry was what are we doing today!!

Lets Scrap - October 1st Sketch

I apologize for the delay in posting, but I had some Blogger issues yesterday

Here is a great sketch from Let's Scrap this week - there are so many things that could be done with this!!!

I know it is shocking but I did this layout using some super cute pics of one of my BFF's grandbabies, Madeline, I was lucky enough to take these pics too so I might be a little partial ;)
